Bmw 318ti road rally car

Postby sh123 » Sun Feb 08, 2015 1:12 am

Hi

been on this forum a while now, since last april probably as thats when i got this car :) I thought i should start a build thread for my own benefit as well as others as im sure it will come usefull for myself at one point haha.

anyway got myself a s reg 318ti compact in silver with the aim of using it as a night event/road rally car. has the standard engine in for now but i have big plans just like anybody else whos into their rallying haha but this is my first ever car so i need to get some events in first before splashing out big style so for now the basic spec is

abs removed, bias valve, hydraulic hbrake etc
ferodo pads with standard vented discs
group 4 escort rear bilsteins and motorsport spec bilstein on front
medium case with 4.4lsd
sparco cage
home made sumpguard
lightforce spots

have done an autotest in it and loved it but first proper event will be next weekend on the valentine rally in anglesey

now some pics havent really got pics of throughout the build or how it was when i first got it.



think next on the list is sort a decent radiator and fan andthen lightened flywheel and clutch

cheers

Are those machined s50 pistons? I take it you are using a diesel m47 crankshaft also
